Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
(You can find ones I've done previously under the commentary tag).
I'm obviously far too obscure for my own good. The fandom was actually Babylon Five (though there's also a nod to The Man Who Was Thursday). Here are the headers:
Fandom: Babylon Five
Characters: OCs, Ulkesh Naranek
Rating: All ages
Word count: ~1900
Disclaimer: Ulkesh was created by J. Michael Straczynski.
Summary: In Victorian London, a working girl finds she's on the side of the angels.
This isn't any of my WIPs, but it wanted to be written.
Also, I'm not including headers or tags, because it'd be interesting to know at what point you recognised the fandom / characters (if you did).

From the ficlet meme back in March, I've actually written something. This was from romanajo123's prompt: Ace & Ray - “You’re supposed to talk me out of this.”
Andromeda (509 words) by JohnAmendAll
Fandom: Doctor Who (1963)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Rachel 'Ray' Defwydd, Ace McShane
Summary: Ray supposed it was very mythological, being chained to a rock waiting for something unpleasant to slither out of the sea and eat you.
I haven't been writing anything, and I've still got a fake TV show to come up with at some point (I've cast, um, one actress so far). So obviously it's the perfect time to snatch up a prompt meme from lost_spook
(and then head off to tumblr
to fill in the gaps).
So... Give me two characters or more (pairing or otherwise) and a prompt number and I’ll write a ficlet:
( prompts follow )
... if you gave them half a chance.
146) Deeper - Megan Hart
Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her.She was Isobel Watkins, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Elizabeth, her well-groomed, intellectual girlfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that summer she met Zoë Heriot, the moody, dark-haired, local bad girl. She was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy. Instead, Zoë became her dirty little secret — a fervent sexual accomplice who knew how to ignite an all-consuming obsession she had no idea she carried deep within her. Isobel had always wondered what happened to Zoë after that summer. And now, back at the beach house and taking a break from responsibility, from marriage, from life, she discovers her heartbreaking fate — and why she never came back for her. Suddenly Zoë's name is on her lips... her hands on her thighs... dark hair and eyes called back from the swirling gray of purgatory's depths.
(I also wonder if the generator's pick for romantic false lead was Liz Shaw or Elizabeth Bennet).

Comment to this post with a fic title (a word, phrase or quotation), a fandom and, if desired, a character or pairing. I'll reply with a summary of the fic I won't write for that title, in this way generating plot-bunnies, gaiety of nations and perhaps even actual fic by other people.
